Abstract:We studied and developed methods for quantitative characterization of hard biological tissue, in particular nail. Using ultrasound, we found correlations between physical and acoustical parameters of nails and their health status. We then attempted to create reliable criteria for quantitative analyses of fingernails to provide accurate diagnosis of various diseases.
